Cal State San Bernardino’s Women in Computer Science & Engineering is hosting a virtual panel session featuring officials from the Environmental Protection Agency on March 10 on Pathways internships and job opportunities in the federal government.
The panel session is at 1 p.m. PST on Zoom. To register for the event, visit the Women in Computer Science & Engineering EPA panel session .
The panelists are:
Emily Pimentel who works in the U.S.-Mexico Border Program in the TIP Division, and has been with the EPA since 2003. Prior to joining the EPA, she worked in environmental consulting on both the East and West coasts and internationally on multi-media assessments, cleanups, permits, emergency response, military base closures and institutional capacity building.
Outside the EPA, Pimentel has volunteered for nonprofits that support environmental and arts programs, including six years as a trustee for the Mexican Museum in San Francisco. She was drawn to serve as the Hispanic Employment manager to help others build fulfilling careers and to bring awareness about the rich cultural and ethnic history of our region, better equipping us to work with our diverse communities.
Romie Duarte currently works as a community involvement coordinator, facilitating the engagement of residents affected by Superfund cleanup efforts. Throughout her EPA career, Duarte has sought out opportunities to learn new skills and has been involved in projects with all the Region’s divisions, including working on Outdoor Chats, EPA@40, and environmental education.
While a student at Cal State Fullerton, Duarte became a grantee of the National Science Foundation, working with a team replicating and expanding research projects directed at extending the life span of cut flowers and a Student Temporary Employment Program (STEP) employee in EPA’s Southern California Field Office. Duarte has a BA in public administration from Cal State Fullerton and BS in environmental studies from Southern New Hampshire.
Camille Webber joined the EPA as a Pathways intern in 2020 and currently serves as the human resources outreach coordinator for Region 9.
